India Gang-Rape Victim Flown To Singapore Hospital, May Need Organ Transplant

A 23-year-old student who was gang-raped on December 16 in New Delhi has died in a Singapore hospital

A 23-year-old woman who was gang-raped on a bus in Delhi and left with severe internal injuries has now been flown to a Singapore hospital for treatment.

The victim arrived in Singapore in an air ambulance and was admitted to the Mount Elizabeth hospital, which is renowned for its state of the art multi-organ transplant facilities, said The Guardian.

In a public statement, the hospital said she was admitted to the intensive care unit “in an critical condition” and was “being examined and the hospital is working with the Indian High Commission.”

The rape took place on December 16. Since then, nearly daily protests across New Delhi, Manipur, and other parts of the country have accelerated calls for the death penalty for rapists. At present, the crime is punishable by sentences of up to life in prison.

Six men have been arrested over the gang rape, and two police officers were subsequently suspended. An inquiry into these events is now under way and is being led by retired judge Usha Mehra, the BBC reports.

This latest rape has highlighted an endemic problem of unwanted sexual attention that Indian women face daily in cities and towns. According to The Guardian, many rape victims rarely come forward because of the social stigma attached.

Officials have said the medical student was traveling with a male friend on a bus when they were attacked by six men. After the attack, the men beat the couple with iron rods, stripped them of their clothes, and threw them off the bus as it was moving, said the BBC.

After they were found by bystanders, they were taken to New Delhi’s Safdarjang hospital. The bus, which was reportedly empty apart from the attackers and the couple, drove through the city for hours during the assault and even passed through police checkpoints, The Guardian reports.

The extent of the young woman’s injuries are horrific. The Press Trust of India quoted a hospital medical superintendent — BD Athani — as saying the woman suffered severe intestinal and abdominal injuries. She has already undergone three surgeries and parts of her intestines have been removed. The woman was kept on ventilator support during her 10 day stay in Safdarjang hospital.

According to The Guardian, the Press Trust of India said the Indian government is covering the woman’s medical expenses. Reportedly, her mental outlook is “composed” but periodic bouts of infection are a cause for concern.

    AN INDEPENDENT MEDICAL EXAMINATION OF THE VICTIM WILL SHOW THAT THERE WERE NO INJURIES TO HER INTESTINES OR OTHER INTERNAL ORGANS, NO SURGERIES AND NO GANG RAPE.

    (December 26, 2012) Like the RAW-dictated false autopsy report of severe injuries on the police constable who died during protests and the Lohia Hospital doctors who found no injuries on the constable ordered to report to police station with all their records to be intimidated and forced to alter them, the victim of the fabricated gang rape has been flown to Singapore to avoid an independent medical examination that I suggested on December 25 '12 that would have been easy in India — though not by Naresh Trehan who works with RAW and took care of Anna Hazare during his RAW-sponsored fake fasts I have described at JoinIndiaWarOfIndependenceDOTblogspotDOTcom — which would have shown that there were no injuries to her intestines or other internal organs, no surgeries and no gang rape, to be treated by CIA-controlled American-British doctors and undergo fictitious organ transplants which will explain the absence of injuries to the internal organs and, if necessary, a fictitious death with a CIA-RAW-created autopsy report.

    RAW IS REMOVING MY POSTED COMMENTS. SAVE THIS ON YOUR COMPUTER AND PASS IT ON.
    (December 19, 2012): The outrage at the gang rape and brutalization of a girl in New Delhi has been engineered and the incident itself fabricated by RAW to divert attention from its trafficking of Indian children to be used as food: RAWsTraffickingOfIndianChildrenDOTblogspotDOTcom. There is a large and growing market for the meat of Indian children in certain countries. A large number of Indians in the Meerut area and elsewhere are employed in this industry — the busting of "a 150-member gang, which allegedly used to slaughter abducted children, roast their bodies and eat them after failing to strike a handsome deal with child traffickers" was reported at : dailyDOTbhaskarDOTcom/article/UP-another-horror-nithari-like-vampires-exposed-in-meerut-2878885DOThtml. The plans for Walmart's entry into India include a vast expansion of this industry, setting up better and more efficient supply chains and processing plants within India; at present the children are taken out of India to be processed.

    Chief Minister Sheila Dick-shit knows the gang rape was fabricated by RAW and so is saying she did not have the "courage" to meet the victim, so she can say later she never saw the victim and so did not know the gang rape was fabricated. The police are being "evasive" as the High Court said because the police know the gang rape was fabricated by RAW.

    (December 25, 2012) An independent medical examination of the victim will show that there were no injuries to her intestines or other internal organs, no surgeries and no gang rape.
